Darth Vader invokes a fearsome image on-screen and in literature as one of the most widely recognized villains in all of cinema and pop culture. Born “Anakin Skywalker” on the planet of Tatooine, he was discovered and trained by Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and was subsequently mentored by Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. His power was soon unmatched by those who tried to challenge him, due to his training and the incredibly high count of Midi-Chlorians (microscopic life forms) in his blood. Anakin famously assumed the moniker “Darth Vader” after he was lured to the Dark Side by Emperor Palpatine. He later became the main antagonist for Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, who turned out to be his biological children hidden at birth. Following an incredible journey and an epic battle between Luke and Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader sacrificed himself to save his son. His meaningful final act of defending Luke completed his redemption arc and remains one of the most memorable cinematic moments in history.

The obverse of the coin showcases the right-facing portrait of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Ian-Rank Broadley. The Queen is surrounded by inscriptions including the year of mintage and the denomination.

The reverse of the coin displays an official copyrighted image of Darth Vader wielding his lightsaber. The stylized design depicts the iconic Sith Lord in front of an Imperial Logo background, with a border that encompasses half the coin.
